ADDIS ABABA – Nearly four years after the crash of an Ethiopian Airliner flight ET302 that killed 157 people, officials reiterated their earlier accusations – pointing fingers at Boeing over mechanical faults they say, led to the downing of the 737-MAX 8 aircraft.
State investigators on Friday released their final report into the crash.
The head of Ethiopia’s investigation, Amdeye Ayalew, blamed Boeing for their failure to ‘disclose early and attentively’ issues with the 737-MAX 8’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System – MCAS.
The aircraft, which was bound for the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, went down minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa.
The final report into the Ethiopian Airlines Group incident also concluded that all professionals and planes related to the crash were correctly certified.
